Islam is Fluid and Mobile, but Muslims Seem to be STAGNANT

This is what Al Ghazali said about growth:

In al-Mustaßfå, al-Ghazal• likens Islamic legal theory, and the competence to extract
legal rulings, to a tree cultivated by a man. He explains that the fruits of the tree represent
the legal rulings - which are the purpose for planting the tree in the first place. Its
trunk and branches are the textual material that allows the tree to bear fruit and sustain
them. But in order for the tree to be cultivated, human agency must play its part. The

Kibaki must be held responsible for the bloodshed. ECK has no excuse, they too can be charged for complicity to commit genocide. Those who are looking at the tribal hatred and murder might be naive to try to blame Raila, but the truth is Kibaki number 2, must be stopped by any means necessary. The signs are very clear, "A Tribal Dictatorship." Kenyans had no problem in the last election when Kibaki, a Kikuyu ran against Uhuru, another Kikuyu. It is time for Kikuyus to stand up and smell the chai. Kikuyus are the poorest and the most oppressed. Shoot to Kill has always been used against Kikuyus "Del Monte." The only matatus that must go to the police station for a strip search, are the ones going to Kikuyuland. There are more Kikuyus in prison than any other group. Kikuyus just like they rejected Uhuru and what he stood for, can reject Kibaki for trying to bring back the KANU type dictatorship. Raila and Luos should also be very careful when making statements about the election. Kenyans did not vote for Raila the Luo; Kenyans voted for Raila the ODM nominee.
